    • “We rented this lovely farmhouse last week, in order to meet up with some old friends. It was recommended to me by another friend who had previously rented it under the old owner [ it has just been taken over] There were 12 adults in total and we had a fantastic time in wonderful surroundings. We were greeted on arrival by a lovely lady called Cath who was very welcoming and helpful. She and her husband have just bought the place. Although the furniture is rather dated, everywhere was spotlessly clean with new bedding and towels. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to cook for 12. There are 2 reception rooms, one of which has a log burner, which would be fabulous during the winter. These rooms were warm and cosy, having south facing views over the Derbyshire countryside. There is loads to do in the area with great walks and some lovely pubs. Try The Packhorse for super food and fab ice cream. This is an ideal venue for large groups wanting an inexpensive break and there is the added bonus of being able to take your dogs. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at Brow Farm if you want to chill out in the countryside with easy access to all the sights of Derbyshire and at a great price. We all hope to revisit in 2015 for another reunion.”

About the location


Chapel en le Frith 5 miles; Buxton 11 miles.

New Mills is a small town situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire, forming part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Dating back to the 13th century, the late 20th century saw the Torrs Riverside Park (‘the park under the town’) come into being a place for recreation and relaxation, along with the New Mills Heritage Centre, opened to promote tourism in the area. The Torrs Millennium Walkway, a much-admired bridge, is set deep in the gorge and attracts many visitors, while Chapel en le Frith, the Capital of the Peaks, is only 5 miles away, boasting a cobbled market place and historic old stocks. Within easy driving distance is the delightful spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. Within easy driving distance are the Blue John show caves at Castleton, the Chestnut Centre Otter & Owl Sanctuary, and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. An ideal base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.
